On Feb. 28, 2009, Peter Jenniskens, meteor astronomer at NASA Ames Research Center and the SETI Institute Mountain View, Calif., found his first 2008TC3 meteorite, which broke into two pieces when it landed. "It was an incredible feeling," Jenniskens said. "I realized that I was the first person to lay eyes on these rocks from space, laying there in the sand much the same as the day they fell on the ground," he said.

It all started on May 25, 1961, when President John F. Kennedy announced the goal of sending astronauts to the moon before the end of the decade. Coming just three weeks after Mercury astronaut Alan Shepard became the first American in space, Kennedy's bold challenge set the nation on a journey unlike any before in human history. Eight years of hard work by thousands of Americans came to fruition on July 20, 1969, when Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong stepped out of the lunar module and took...

In a clean room at the Astrotech payload processing facility in Titusville, Fla., workers prepare to rotate NASA's Kepler spacecraft before it is uncovered and prepared for initial testing. A NASA Discovery mission, Kepler is specifically designed to survey our region of the Milky Way galaxy to discover hundreds of Earth-size and smaller planets in or near the habitable zone and determine how many of the billions of stars in our galaxy have such planets. After processing at Astrotech, Kepler...

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Inside the Hazardous Processing Facility at Astrotech in Titusville, Fla., NASA's Kepler spacecraft is placed on a stand for fueling. Kepler is designed to survey more than 100,000 stars in our galaxy to determine the number of sun-like stars that have Earth-size and larger planets, including those that lie in a star's "habitable zone," a region where liquid water, and perhaps life, could exist. If these Earth-size worlds do exist around stars like our sun, Kepler...

Nineteen teams pushed their robot competitors to the limit, and three teams claimed a total of ,000 in NASA prizes at this year's Regolith Excavation Challenge on Oct. 17-18. This is the first time in the competition's three-year history that any team qualified for a cash prize, the largest NASA has awarded to date. After two days of intense competition hosted at NASA's Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, Calif., organizers conferred first place prize of ,000 to Paul's Robotics of Worcester,...

In the Payload Changeout Room on Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the payload for the STS-119 mission is being transferred to space shuttle Discovery's cargo bay. The payload consists of the integrated truss structure S6 and solar arrays. During Discovery's 14-day mission, the shuttle's seven astronauts will install the S6 truss segment and solar arrays to the starboard side of the International Space Station, completing the station's truss, or backbone.

The image on the left shows the NIR (0.9-1.7 Â_m) Camera #2 image of Earth at a distance of 560,000 km. The inset shows the Earth face as seen by the LCROSS spacecraft. The image on the right shows water vapor as seen by GOES at a similar time as the LCROSS observation. Red letters indicate potential weather features common in both images.

The anniversary of the Oakland fire storm was this week. As a precursor to Ikhana, a C-130 flight was used by firefighters to ''see'' through the smoke and better direct their efforts. This image calls out landmarks within the fire region. Image specifics are as follows. This data was acquired by the NASA C-130B Earth Resources Survey aircraft flying at 6,000 ft. mean sea level at 10:26 a. m. on October 21, 1991. The sensor used was the NS001 Thermatic Mapper Simulator, with a ground resolution...
